Progress?



A little background....

1965 R50/2 bought by my dad and mom in 1967 while living in Hawaii. They paid the equivalent of another seat on the plane to fly it back to the mainland in 1969. Got into Seattle, loaded it up and rode it across the country passing through Sturgis during the rally. According to the stories, the Hawaiian plate got lots of comments. I have pictures of them sitting in my grandparents driveway taking off their helmets. I remember riding on the back of the bike around the yard when I was probably 5. The floats in the carbs went bad and the bike sat until I moved it to Illinois in about 2003. I then tore it apart, got moved to Virginia, and now I am putting it back together with dad's help.
